the Avenger and the Stinger.

The Avenger is a Humvee equipped with a .50 caliber machine gun and Stinger missiles. It can engage low-flying targets like drones and helicopters from both stationary and moving positions. Soldiers train on the Avenger using the Institutional Conduct of Fire Trainer (ICOFT), a simulator that provides computer-generated battlefield scenarios.

The Stinger is a man-portable air-defense system that uses infrared-guided missiles to engage aircraft and drones from several miles out. Soldiers train on the Stinger using the Improved Moving Target Simulator (IMTS), a facility where they stand in the middle of a dome and fire on computer-generated enemy aircraft projected onto the walls.

The reporter found both simulations to be challenging. The Avenger felt more like a video game, while the Stinger Dome provided a more immersive experience. Despite the difficulty, the reporter gained a new appreciation for the skills required to operate these systems in real-world combat situations.
